I'm too old (and out of shape) to be running through airports

  • Sorry to hear you didn't get more of a chance to visit Charleston. We lived outside of Charleston for three years and really grew to love the place. In fact, Charleston and Savannah are still our two favorite American cities.

    Chris Pruett's response:
    She had rounds of 85, 73, 80. The 85 was on a day with 30-35 mph wind, and the average score that day was 84.5 on that course. You know how it is Simmons, that 73 was so close to being a 70 or 69 ... too many close birdie putts didn't fall. The 80 the next day was a good 80 ... her approach shots weren't like the day before. Overall, she finished No. 1 for Ball State. The team didn't do as well as it would have liked, but not too bad considering the weather in Muncie didn't allow them to get out much.

    Now it's off to Phoenix and Florida in a week or so.

    Thanks for asking Simmons!!!

  • hahaha!! i would have paid to see you running through the airport!! i think that's why we condition so much!!! never know when you're going to need to sprint to a flight!! hahaha!

    thanks for asking about me Simmons!!! over all i played pretty well, i was just glad to be competing again! and that 73 was a career low for me (at Ball State)!!

  • Rachael, To be # 1 on a college team is a credit to your hard work. I know you'll enjoy every minute of it, that's quite an opportunity you have made for yourself.

    As for your Dad, as I read that story, I got a visual on his running through the airport and I'm pretty sure that you should save your money.

    Good luck with your spring season and hope to see you at The Phil.

    Been there done that - hope to never again.

    Not a pretty site for my part. Then security says I need to go to that special room, the one you do not want to go to.
